tv CBS 5 Eyewitness News at 11 CBS August 3, 2010 10:00pm-10:35pm PST
. there is no toilet in my mind that judge walker is going to say that prop 8 should be thrown out. the decision is coming tomorrow. why that legal experts so sure. an oakland neighborhood considering extra security in response to extra layoffs. why some say protection is right next door. >> a lot say moms should do it. the problems that keep them from breast feeding, and the problems with it. >> you learned some details on youtube. >> the news you can see on an east bay corner. the news starts now. >> cbs5 eyewitness news. major ruling w on . >> good evening, i'm allen martin. a federal judge will make a major ruling public tomorrow. u.s. district judge vaughn walk service going to relace his decision on whether the state's ban on same-sex marriage
vacation lights the constitution. robert lyles with what both sides expect tomorrow. >> the judge's decision is expected sometime between 1 and 3:00 in the afternoon and at this hour it's still unknown how he will rule but cbs5 did speak with a legal scholar tonight who says he has monitored this trial since opening arguments and believes the judge will rule that california cannot ban same-sex marriage. >> and there is no doubt in my mind that judge walker is going to say that prop 8 should be thrown out. >> reporter: peter keen of golden gate university's law school says that's because same- sex marriage has again rated the same legal questions as the landmark brown versus board of education case in which the supreme court ruled it was a denial of the 14th amendment to have segregated education. >> i would be very surprised, based upon what i saw of the trial and based upon what i saw of the interaction of judge walker, particularly in the
closing arguments to have lawyers, if judge walker did not say that it's a violation of the 14th amendment, equal protection, to not allow gay people to marry. >> stewart gaffney hopes dean keen is right. >> we have all been on pins and needles waiting for this ruling. >> reporter: he and his spouse john lewis sued back in 2004 when california overturned same- sex marriages approved by mayor gavin newsom. their case went to the state's supreme court. >> most couples can go to a judge and get married again. less by an and gay couples have to go to court timonen to win just the basic freedom to marry but what is unique about this lawsuit is it's the first time that the arguments for and against the fundamental freedom to marry are being put to the test of evidence. >> reporter: that's important because both sides have already said they'll appeal regardless of how judge walker rules. but judge walker's allowance of
testimony makes an appeal by same-sex advocates that much easier. >> well now they have gay people who have testified and said "we see ourselves and second class citizens." whatever the ninth circuit does is really academic. ultimately this case is gonna wind up before the supreme court of the united states. >> reporter: now judge walker goes on, i should say the legal experts go on to say if judge walker declares that prop # is unconstitutional but does not issue a stay then same-sex marriages can resume, the state would even allow those marriages previously deemed invalid to be valid. if he issues a stay then that means that no marriage can continue until all appeals have been exhausted. and, finally, if the judge determines that prop 8 is constitutional then the ban on same-sex marriage continues here in california. allen? >> so in the meantime robert, you say the couples that did
marry, they are waiting on hold. >> robert lyles in oakland, thank you so much. i want you to stay with cbs5 and cbs5.com for complete coverage of that ruling. we're gonna have details as well as reaction. >> well tonight was national night out, a chance for people in every neighborhood to show unity in the fight against crime and drugs. as kiet do shows us one oakland neighborhood is considering something extra for its safety. . >> reporter: it is national night out in the city of oakland and they can't help but think about the other 364 days a year. >> burglaries are up and car crimes are up. >> reporter: roger brett is the closest thing there is to a mayor in this excluded area of the oakland hills, he says crime has gone up ever since they laid off 80 police officers last month. lately there's been a lot of talk amongmont claire residents about chipping in and paying for their own private security patrols. they are in the early discussion stages but nothing
has been taken off the table. >> i would suspect you would hear that from other people. it's not a no, it's not a yes, because there is a lot to learn about it. >> hello all brans. >> reporter: at an event to kick off national night out oakland police chief anthony bass says over all crime is down. he says neighbors are free to hire private security guards but they should do it for the right reasons. >> i think security has a role to play but i hope they are not doing that because they are afraid and think that we're losing control. >> reporter: we've got channel 5 here. >> reporter: council member jean klein who overseesmont claire questions the security of guards saying nothing beats the old fashioned crime fighting tactic of getting to know your neighbor. >> reporter: how do you manning the fear? >> i think a neighborhood like this has very little crime but they also are a very tight neighborhood and look out after each other. >> reporter: with city governments and police departments shrinking who should we turn to for help? as one neighbor said, each other. in oakland, kiet do, cbs5.
